"Friends" star Lisa Kudrow got pulled in by one of the many rumors that there will be a "Friends" TV reunion show, and she was even a little offended that they hadn’t asked her to join the reunion — until she figured out it was a hoax.

Rumors that popular TV show “Friends” will host a reunion abound on the Internet, and many seem to be just wishful thinking. But Kudrow said she saw an article headlined “NBC Confirms 5 out of 6 Friends Are In,” and she was initially shocked that she hadn’t been asked, United Press International reported.

Once she realized it was a hoax, Kudrow said she felt bad for all the "Friends" fans who still watch and follow the show even 10 years after it went off the air, UPI said. She ran into a little bit of their hostility when she said in an interview that a reunion was never going to happen.

“They were angry, like I’m the one who shut it down,” she said, according to UPI.

E! Online reported that Kudrow’s "Friends" co-star Jennifer Anniston told Conan O’Brien that she felt a little bit of the same pull into believing the rumors, and was worried she hadn’t been called to come back, either.

"I think it created that anxiety of like, ‘What if that did happen?' and they're all cooking up a show, like a Thanksgiving episode, which I always thought were my favorites, and ‘What happened to Rachel?!'" she said on Conan’s talk show.

"Friends" was listed by Time magazine as one of the Top 100 Television Shows, and it aired from 1994 to 2004.
